“Suicide Squad,” DC’s highly anticipated anti-hero movie has a fresh update for its fans regarding who will be Task Force X’s target. Rumors surfaced before that the sinister Joker played by Jared Leto will be the focus of the manhunt but a new name has surfaced lately, and it is none other than Cara Delevingne's The Enchantress.
Movie Pilot has gathered information regarding this new theory that has yet to be confirmed, so take caution when digesting the details.
First off, the shift from Jared Leto’s The Joker as the main villain of “Suicide Squad” to Cara Delevingne’s The Enchantress somehow changed the whole scenario of the David Ayer movie.
According to Heroic Hollywood, the latest theory claims that The Enchantress will be the primary villain. The character is said to be searching for her brother whom she wants to raise from the dead. Thus, the Suicide Squad or Task Force X was created and sent out on a mission to prevent her from realizing her goal that could lead to the world’s destruction.
This latest information was made based off of clues taken from the Comic-Con trailer where she was nowhere to be seen on the scenes of the members of the Suicide Squad when they gathered as a team. So, it paved the way for the possibility that The Enchantress was the one they were looking for as ordered by Viola Davis’ character Amanda Waller.
This new take on The Enchantress aka June Moon would be a dramatic farewell from her comic book equal, who thought that the best way to keep her dark side in check would be to enlist on Task Force X, as per Cinema Blend.
Although this theory was a bit sketchy at first, scouring for clues in "Suicide Squad's" trailer may give it some credit. Like The Enchantress being all by herself when she explored a mysterious cave. She could also be seen alone as she laid down in the water where a carved pentagram loomed over her and looking particularly worn out. But then again it may also be that she was on an official but separate mission.
Comicbook.com has pointed out that similarly, Jared Leto's The Joker was not also seen together with the other characters of the Suicide Squad. Apparently, it might be because of his limited screen time — The Joker is only seen in flashbacks to narrate the origin story of Harley Quinn.
Well, whatever the case is, stay tuned for the latest updates here as we await DC's release of another teaser trailer that might give further answers.
